From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dubtronica is electronic music influenced by dub music.[1] Early examples from the 1980s are the experimental English dub of On-U Sound Records and Mad Professor.[1] It is also called simply "dub" or "techdub".[citation needed]

Dubtronica consists of electronic beats played in a downbeat manner. It is much lower in speed than techno and generally warmer than dance-oriented electronica. Some tracks use reggae toasters or singers to produce a more accessible form of the music.[citation needed]
